What's Cartagena Like?

Cartagena has been a popular maritime destination since ancient times with the Carthaginians (Cartagena means new Carthage), Greeks and Romans passing through the city's natural harbor. There are still many ancient ruins in Cartagena, including a restored Roman theater and the Muralla Bizantina (Byzantine wall), which dates from the Middle Ages. Maritime history buffs will enjoy the National Museum of Underwater Archeology, which features an outstanding collection of Greek and Roman artifacts. Cartagena is a major base for the Spanish Navy and its Naval Museum includes an exact replica of the famed Peral submarine, which was the first electric-powered U-boat in the world. Cartagena's park is an ideal place to start a tour of the city. The scenic park is surrounded by the ruins of a medieval fortress, the Castillo de la Concepcion and a lovely seafront walk lined with Palm trees. Across the street from the park is Cartagena's whimsical city hall, which is one of the many Art Nouveau buildings scattered throughout Cartagena. The park also borders the Calle Mayor, a large vibrant street that features tapas bars and fashionable boutiques.
